Replace the brake hose. It has collapsed on the inside and the outer casing is holding pressure on the caliper.

How can I tell if I have a faulty wheel speed sensor on 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS

One possible cause is that these systems remember values from the last time the vehicle was started. Sounds like sitting for a long time is caused unacceptable differences between current and last readings. This is possibly because of a vehicle attitude change, often due to a low tire pressure. Modern low profile tires are very sensitive to pressure changes - pressures tend to drastically change with changing ambient temperature and will deflate over time.
Also try starting the vehicle more frequently - that is needed to keep the drive train and electronic systems in good working order.

Check the control arm, and the control arm bushings on the left side. Sounds like something is broken, loose, or totally worn out. Use a sturdy pry bar to try to force it in different directions front and back, any play will become apparent.

What does Service Ride Control mean?

on mine, there is a ride control switch in the passenger side, just turn it back on and should work. in some models they are else where, sometimes they are disabled when you change a tire and what not, the other is that the shocks are over due. hope this helps.
